Weather looks like it will be ok for the big WGP showdown on Saturday with the Sprint Tri event deciding the final outcome in several of the age categories? To take part you’ll need to be setting up your bike etc from 6.15am and be ready in the pool for a mass start at 7.00am LATEST! Those who just want to swim can come along for the 7.25am session - but how about arriving slightly earlier and helping to count lengths? You will also need t-shirts etc as it’s a Force set this week. Once out of the pool why not grab a coffee and cheer your fellow members home over the run section? If I could have one person to help me with timings then that would be great please?

Saturday 30th April is the Race Recce and this hugely popular event will require a considerable number of you to help by riding and running around the Sprint or Try-a-Tri courses with EG race entrants. On the field with your bike at 9.00am please?

And then the following weekend……it’s the Big One!

Safety briefing in the cafe area around 8.45am on Saturday 7th and then start work on the field at 9.00am. With sufficient hands and working under the strict instructions and devilish plan of the LPG we are usually finished in time for free bacon (or veggie alternative) rolls at 10.30am. Registration opens later in the afternoon and then on Sunday 500+ racers turn up from 6.00am onwards eager to pit themselves against all the EG Race can throw at them! They are however safe in the knowledge that they will be cheered every step of the way by the knowledgeable and generous marshals for whom the Race is famous! And that, of course, is all of you!

The monumental task of organising the race falls on a small team who give up weeks of their own time throughout the year - but it doesn’t all come together if every single one of you doesn’t give just a few hours on Sunday to put the finishing touches to it! So, you, your family, friends, loved ones and complete strangers you bump into should all be desperate to help out - and letting Cathy know that so she stops worrying about it! Do it now, today, immediately!

Train safe - and email Cathy!
